Shows a teacher all of the assignments and manual quiz questions (essays and file responses) that have been submitted, but not graded. The block is configured to work with groups that is, teachers will only see the assignments submitted by students if they are both members of the same group. You'll have to let me know if it works with courses that don't use groups at all. You can install the block on the Front Page and it will show ungraded assignments for ALL courses, and if you put the block on a course page it will only show the ungraded assignments for that course.

    Invalid get_string() identifier: 'modulename' or component 'mod_assignment'. Perhaps you are missing $string['modulename'] = ''; in mod/assignment/lang/en/assignment.php?

    PHP 7.4
    Moodle 3.10

    Grade Me work as expected, but:

    In my case the Assignments counts out of 1, to the learner is either 0 or 1. (Obviously 1 to pass.)
    When the Teacher SAVE the feedback in the grading, without reverting it back to DRAFT (to allow the learner to re-submit it, it also removes it from the Grade Me block.

    So the Teacher updated a comment on the Assignment without grading.
    Item still shows "waiting grading", but does not appear on Grade Me block.

    This did not work like this in 3.9 as far as I know.

    One of our clients has requested a feature for the plugin, the ability for assignment links in the block to link to the annotating assignment page, rather than the non annotating page. Can this be implemented as a config setting? I can provide code if it would help.

    That would be great if the courses were sorted by course name. Also, for each course, the assignments could be sorted by name. Thank you.

    Thank you for the plugin, we loved it, but we can't make it work on Moodle 3.9 with plugin version 3.9.

    Teachers and students are in the same group, but it says "Nothing to grade" even when the student has delivered a task and the teacher has received Moodle and email notification.

    The strange thing is that having the same configurations in and environment with Moodle 3.8 and plugin 3.8 it works properly.

    Could you please help us with this issue?

    Hello, just to address a few questions/requests:
    * For any feature requests or bug reports please submit these as an issue on our GitHub tracker at . If possible review existing issues first to determine if one of them matches your case, and if so add a comment with any more detailed information you'd like to provide.
    * In the case of bugs please include the version of Moodle/Grade Me being tested, setup and all steps needed to reproduce the error, current outcome and expected outcome that would confirm the error is resolved. We will be reviewing these in the coming weeks as we plan further work on Grade Me, and will include them as we are able in future releases.
    * Note that we do not have an existing release of Grade Me available for Moodle 3.10 yet, but once we do it will be posted on GitHub and as an official version here on the plugin directory. We will also be reviewing the current Moodle 3.9 release to determine any items that may have broken in 3.9 as compared to the prior versions.
    * If you're seeing assignments fail to display in the block a few items to check would be making sure your given grade item type is enabled in the block settings page, and making sure the Moodle cron task is enabled and running the Grade Me scheduled tasks on the server. You'll also need to confirm that the cron job is successful and not outputting any errors with connecting to the database.

    Eamon, with the new UI, if you click on the checkmark next to the user's name, it should take you directly to the annotation page. The action was there before but it was really difficult to see what you were pointing at so we took that request into consideration with the latest update.

    I do not know why this plugin not working on our site, is there anything extra need to be configured?
  • Mon, Apr 19, 2021, 1:07 PM
    Install, then add a block (from the dropdown options take grade me) on the home page or course pages to install.

    Please add support for 3.10 and 3.11

    Hi everyone, is it possible that students can also add the block to their dashboard? I did a query to see who was using it, but I received results from student accounts.

    We love this plugin and it is a standard part of our courses. Having upgraded to Moodle 3.9 last year, we are just now getting around to updating our documentation for teachers. We'd like to take advantage of Moodle's new whole forum grading but realized that the Grade Me block does not indicate that forums using that method need to be graded. Please consider adding this feature. [Documented on GitHub tracker.]

    Hello, is there any timeline for a 3.11 test-approved version being released?
    I can see from the stats it is being downloaded for 3.11 sites, but out IT team won't install any apps that aren't maintained in line with our upgrade cycle.

    Hi there,

    I'm really struggling to get this block to work. I've got the correct version for my Moodle version. The student and teacher are grouped together in the course. The Cron run and Scheduled Task are running fine, and the Assignment activity box is selected in the settings. I'm receiving emails from when students submit work but the block is still saying "Nothing to Grade". Is there anything I'm missing here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've also got the box "Admins View All" box ticked and the block for admins is saying "Nothing to grade".
